Boy Made Lame By Boko Haram Returns From Dubai Walking
It was tears of joy and smiles on the faces of those who came to the airport to welcome Ali Ahmadu home.
He was only two-years old when Boko Haram attacked his community in Chibok in 2013.
That attack caused him some serious problems that had him confined to a wheel chair.
Wheeled into the plane three months ago for a surgery in Dubai, Ali is now back, with smiles on his face and bouncing without the wheel chair to confirm he is fully fit to face his future.
Dressed in a grey blazer, white shirt and blue jeans, he was full of life as he disembarked from the Ethiopian Airline plane at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja, at 12:22 p.m.
Overwhelmed with joy, Ali thrilled the crowd with brisk walks at the Abuja airport. It was hectic controlling the crowds who trooped out to catch a glimpse of the boy.
When he was approached by journalists at the arrival area of the airport, he simply said “I am fine.”
When asked in Hausa about his experience in Dubai, he said “lafiya lao” (Fine, thank you).
To really prove that he was fine, Ali lifted his legs in a marching order.
He wants to be a police officer to help fight his enemies – Boko Haram.
“I am fine, I want to be a policeman, I want to save my people from haram.” He said in Hausa language.
Ali has now been granted scholarship up to the university level.
